The feeling of renewal is strong here. Spring arrives first on our coast.
Flowers bloom in February, and t-shirt weather is as much of an early Spring reality in Tofino as wearing gumboots (or wellies). The new life bursting out everywhere is the perfect antidote to the winter blues. Come share our celebration of Spring's arrival - along with the 20,000 or so Gray Whales migrating their way past our shores. They know it's the place to be! The season officially begins in March with the Pacific Rim Whale Festival and winds up mid- to late October as whales migrate south to the Baja Peninsula to birth their calves in warm lagoons.
Brush up on some of your eco-knowledge about Tofino and Clayoquot Sound and you'll be a natural for our Spring giveaway, which includes a beachfront stay! Did you know that Tofino is situated within the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve? It's Spring, and the time for learning in - and about - Tofino - is right.
